EP 23: Fighting Gentrification  with Historic Preservation
An interview with Portland data activist Megan Hanson. Hanson is a complex data analyst who works with logistics software giant Oracle. After seeing alarming rent hikes and a wave of demolitions in her neighborhood, she started to investigate the Portland zoning code on her free time. She found that the State of Oregon required a public notification process before older homes could be demolished, but that the City of Portland was no longer enforcing these rules. As a result, developers were able to buy up cheap rental properties, evict tenants and knock them down. Hanson also helped create a multilayered data map designed to illustrate the impacts of Portland’s new proposal to up-zone 96% of the city. Join us as we get into the weeds of the intersectionality of affordable housing, demolitions, displacement, and historic preservation.
